A daemon that would add/remove swap files on the fly when necessary.

Proposal for a sys-apps/swapd ebuild

 Here is my /usr/local/portage/sys-apps/swapd/ that would do the trick.

/usr/local/portage/sys-apps/swapd proposal (.tar.bz2)

 The proposed attachment is my /usr/local/portage/sys-apps/swapd/ compressed

 Using it you can install swapd 0.2 using ~KEYWORDS (~x86 for example) and
it using /etc/init.d/swapd. Enjoy :)

 Note for the impatient: this is my first ebuild, tested and working here.
know it can be improved and i hope it will not break too much things ...
ebuild is pretty simple though).

 I am not an english speaker, so some comments in the ebuild may have to

 Hope it can improve gentoo ease of use :)

We don't want tarballs, just plaintext ebuilds. Anyway, the latest version is
0.2 (May 21, 2000) according to homepage, so this is apparently discontinued.

Closing as WONTFIX.
